Sun Valley – Season Pass 2008-2009

Gearing up for the upcoming winter skiing season, the Sun Valley Resort in Idaho is offering a number of discounted rates to anyone who purchases their season pass before the season kicks off officially near the end of the year. The Sun Valley Resort is making it easier than ever to renew or purchase season passes, discount passes, 20- or 30-day passes, and Nordic passes using their official website. Activating a current pass to make it valid for the 2008 and 2009 winter season is simple and straight forward.

For snowboarders and skiers interested in purchasing a brand new season pass, the purchase can be made online or in a local pass office, but a photo must be taken to be placed on each individual’s Sun Valley Resort card, granting access to many of the amenities that this unique ski resort offers during the winter season.

Beginning October 13, 2008, winter season passes are going to be offered online and over the phone to anyone looking to make a new purchase. Renewals can be made now for previous guests of the resort. More information about purchasing season passes, 20- or 30-day passes, Nordic passes, and discount passes can be found at the Sun Valley Resort website.

You can also find discounts for lodging, lift tickets, ski rentals, dining, and more for your winter ski vacations.
